Date(s) - November 1, 2018
B’nai Torah hosts, “The Secret Jews of Calabria” with a film screening and Italian dessert reception.
Many of the Italians living in Calabria, southern Italy, have Jewish roots going back to the Inquisition. When an American rabbi of Italian descent, Barbara Aiello, returns to her ancestral village in Calabria to encourage the locals to discover their Jewish heritage, not everyone (Jews and Christians) welcomes her.
